Stories of  lockdown

Creating an archive for the future...

Welcome to our lockdown stories online exhibition that showcases artwork, music, poems and writing produced by Northumberland residents during the Covid-19 lockdowns.

More than 150 entries were received from all ages across the county, with 25 pieces chosen to take their place in history by being entered in the Northumberland Archives for future generations to see and understand how it felt to be living through this time.  

We'll showcase all of the submissions over the coming months, but first take a closer look at our 25 chosen pieces by clicking through our online gallery below.
